  • Sandy Point State Park

    Real summer field trips mean trips to the beach, right? I’ve seen the movies and been in the traffic to the Eastern Shore, so I know it’s true. Two summers ago I even went to Seacrets: I obviously know how to party. But I also know how to ruin things with cynical complaining—about crowds, kids, sand-kicking, open-container laws, and how much work it is just to drag myself down to water that’s frankly too cold to swim in anyway. So, when my ladyfriend told me to suit up and get ready for a summer Saturday, I was simultaneously excited about the chance to do summer “right” and terrified at the prospect of spending many hours in the car and doing a whole lot of work just to relax. God, I’m the worst.
